if the weather holds later today. nasa will launch first observing satellite into orbit. coming up a nasa scientist will join us live. good morning i'm tony perkins. >> and i'm allison seymour. happy you are with us on this monday morning. we know it's a little wet out there. tucker barnes is here to tell you when it's going to dry up. >> and most of the rain is out of here. not going to be a beautiful looking day. >> might get sun later. >> maybe a little sun. a few weaks of sun. today is not promising but tomorrow is. >> isn't that always the way, tuck? >> the sun will come out. rain showers to the east. we're generally done with the rain. not going to be a great looking day. the clouds are going to hold tough. a peak or two or sunshine. temperatures going to warm well into the 50s. should be even a little milder than what we had around here this weekend. temperature at reagan national 39. 39 dulles. bwi marhsall 38. these temperatures should jump 15 degrees or so by the afternoon. a little sun developing early afternoon. highs in the mid 50s around here. may do a 60 or so to our south.
apparently unfounded. nasa is using radar and other technology to study how the asteroid behaves, including its rotation rate, its composition and how it's impacted by the earth's gravity. the idea is to learn enough to prevent cat as it sfroe fee from it threatening in the future. >> we're going to get a lot of information about the asteroid. we're interested in its future motion, whether or not it could come back, whether it threatens the earth. >> reporter: the odds are either this one or another will be back. an asteroid impact the earth about every 120 years on average. it will be visible in the rthernemisphere this evening if you have access to a telescope. for now it's on its way away from the earth out into outer space harmlessly rotating -- or resolving -- excuse me. harmlessly rotating -- i can't even think of the right word. orbiting the sun. harmlessly at least for now, jim. >> casey, thanks very much. we appreciate it. ? or gal lat particular news, a meteor lit up the skies over eastern russia. the blinding light was followed by a series of deafening explosions. listen to this.
